Young Explorer's Guide To Yellowstone National Park

$2.99
National Parks Traveler's first eBook for youngsters examines a place where hot water flows into ice-cold rivers, where fountains of boiling water shoot hundreds of feet into the sky, and where mountains are made of glass and trees are made of stone. It's a place where winter snows can pile up 6 feet deep, and where bears and wolves roam the landscape as they did in the 18th century long before the West was settled.

A Brief History Of Whiskey Use And Alcohol Bans In Yellowstone National Park

In the days of Fort Yellowstone (1886-1918), drinking was not permitted on any military grounds. Violation of this rule could result in fines or imprisonment, though not for more than a year. Additionally, if a soldier was found drunk at his post, he could have been punished by depriving him of passes to visit Gardiner, the nearest town, for a month. As a result of these rules, records and stories seem to indicate that many army soldiers would make the walk from Fort Yellowstone, located at Mammoth Hot Springs, to Gardiner for a drink and some company.

Yellowstone Ranger

There are more than a few new books out this year revolving around national parks, and the one that has provided the most wonderment and joy tied to rangering has been Yellowstone Ranger by Jerry Mernin, who spent more than three decades patrolling the front and backcountry of Yellowstone National Park and left us with insights, hardships, humor, and great satisfaction from a career that left him wishing he could have had "another 32 years to work in Yellowstone."

Ranger Of The Lost Art: National Park History Preserved In Historic Posters

The Robin’s egg blue poster with the bold block lettering was stained, worn, faded, and even tattered a bit around the edges. It promoted ranger programs (“a free government service”) at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, and is one of a unique set of posters that artists from the Works Progress Administration created in the late 1930s and early 1940s to draw interest to our national parks.
